[New-bugs-announce] [issue11010] Unicode BOM left in loaded text

New submission from onpon4 <onpon4 at yahoo.com>:

This is for Python 2.7.1. It isn't an issue on 2.6.5 and I haven't tested it on 3.1.

Quite simply, the Unicode BOM (unichr(65279)) is included in the text loaded from a UTF-8 text file. This can cause issues in some cases, but is easily worked around by calling "s.strip(unichr(65279))" on the first line of loaded text.
